Nearly a year since we've seen a week of dry weather

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

Did you know it has been nearly a year since we have seen a full week of dry weather?? You have to actually go all the way back to the Fair days of last year August 22-28 to find 7 straight days without at least a trace of rain or snow! Now, have there been weeks where the official tally at MSP Airport has been a trace?? Well, yes… so it hasn’t been quite as dismal as the headline sounds (had to draw you in somehow). However, even if you take out the days that the airport has measured a trace of rain or snow, you still only have 6 stretches of dry weather longer than a week since the Fair of last year.

At least we aren’t alone in our exceedingly wet several months. Here are the precipitation totals nationwide from October 1st followed by the departure from average.

 

 

Very easy to see who has seen the most rainfall. Much of the northern US is above average or well above average with some spots more than a foot over what they typically see. Parts of the west and the south are just the opposite with many areas far below standard levels.
